The Spectacular Fantastic is back with another crunchy, catchy, twangy album full of the sugary hooks that you have come to expect from the Cincinnatibased power pop project.
Seven years since the last release on 75orlessRecords (Consume/Reward) have left the band plenty of time to refine and hone their heartland honesty and melodic sound. From the instantly memorable “Without You,” to the back porch strumming of “It's So Hard”, The Spectacular Fantastic cover a dizzying array of sounds and styles with the new album, Circling The Sun.
With influences running the gamut from the Elephant 6 Collective, to classic rock in the vein of Neil Young, to the powerful pop of Big Star, TSF will assure listeners a diverse voyage into the history of pop-leaning rock with unique twists and choruses that sound familiar and new at once.
The current incarnation of the band consists of Mike Detmer and Jonathan Williams. Each member adds to the instrumentation and production of the new album while Dave Davis handled the mastering.
